this time a negotiat bause, a, he won an election and, b, he learned from the experience he is had in his first term? >> i think so, i don't know what david would say to that. as i look at this, a, it's clear he won the election and that gave him somewhat of a policy mandate. he was quite specific of what kind of grand bargain he envisioned that it would involve higher tax revenue. if the president hasn't won the election or had been as big a margin i don't think you would have seen the deal looking as favorae to the administratn as it was. i think the president learned from the debt ceiling and what everybody forgets, the extension of the tax cuts at the end of 2010. i think one lesson that the full administration learned was just because you did a deal that was bipartisan doesn't actually automatically make it easier to make future deals. so they extended it at the end of 2010 in a heavily bipartisan way but that didn't stop us from a really debilitating and horrible experience on the debt ceiling and i thi thatas a backdrop to this negotiation. >> rose: david? >> i think there is much

on the joint staff the summer of 2008, it was getting worse. we had elections coming in the united states and then ey had elecons fghanistan my predecessor in afghanistan general mckernen asked for some troops in 2008. it was decided not to act on that request on the last months of president bush's administration and there was some ongoing assessments. when president obama assumed office with his team in january of 2009, in fact that request was tabled in front of him. and now we have a new administration who has been in the campaign rhetoric supportive of the war in afghanistan. they're faced with a larger quest for troops, faster than they might have liked to be comfortable and time to die just that. they're also hit with a financial crises when it first took over. and so the first response i think is to say well give us time to assess this. but instead, the military department of defense appropriately says we've got afghan elections approaching in the summer and if these forces are going to van impact to help widen serity, th hav to be approved quickly. and so you have this perceived p
, and that is that they've now lost two national elections, okay. and that hurts. i'm sure it hurts. they need to find a new way back to the middle of this country, okay. now, there's an active debate happening within the republican party right now between, "perhaps our problem is that we weren't pure enough," okay -- i mean, we hear those voices on the right who were saying, you know, mitt romney was really just a liberal in disguise, that we didn't make a stark enoug choice, and that what we need is purification, we need to become true, you know, even take this party farther to the right versus those that are in the middle that are saying there is no pathway to political success unless you can reach this new america that is quickly emerging. hispanics, minorities, young people, women who voted in record numbers not just in 2008 but in 2012. and if we ever want to be able to succeed at the national level again we have to find a way to apal back tohese new voters who are not responding to these far right messages, okay. so there's enormous political opportunity. we'll see where the republican party de
to run him for president, "i will not accept if nominated and will not serve if elected." that was the sherman like statement you issued. >> that's, well, i'm not quite up to sherman's standards and i don't think i'm quite ready to lay waste to georgia either. but a good, good man i admire actually. >> but t grassots campaign in your behalf, unofficial, was serious. i mean, over 235,000 people signed on. you broke their hearts. any regrets? >> no, because i probably have more influence than i, doing what i do now than i would if i were inside trying to, you know, do the court power games that come with any white house, even the best, which i don't think i'd be any good at. so no, this is fine. and what the president needs right now is he needs a hardnosed negotiator. and rumor has it that's what he's got, so. >> in jack lew? >> that's right. the present can't pass major new legislation. he can't formulate major new programs right now. what he has to do now is bargain down or ride over these crazy people in the republican party. and we what we need now is not deep thinkin
